You take full accountability for the outcome of the decision and its consequences
You take no arguments with your personal opinions on how to address a problem
Disadvantages of Individual Decision Making
You only see things based on your own perception.
You may have a hard time reaching a decision especially when you have an indecisive character.
It can be difficult for you to tell whether you are experiencing a decision making pitfall or not.
